Mumbai: India's top batsman Virat Kohli has asked the public to use common sense on his much talked about relationship with actress Anushka Sharma, saying they indeed are seeing each other and their privacy should be respected.
"It is out in the open (Jo hai sabke saamne hai abhi). We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything. I don't want to hide anything. But if you get repeatedly asked on the same thing and if it is made a matter of debate then both the individuals don't feel it is right," said Kohli at the launch of his fashion line here on Thursday.
Kohli said it was already obvious that he and Anushka were in a relationship and people should not be curious about them anymore.
"If you are seen together somewhere and still people ask 'is it confirmed?, then it is a matter of common sense. If you know then why ask the same question, that is our basic logic behind it. It is not something wrong apparently for people that we are doing," as per PTI.
"We will not personally like to speak about it because it is something very personal for us and that should be respected by the media and everyone else as well," Kohli said.
Anushka and Virat have often been spotted together. Recently they were seen at an airport. In the pictures clicked at the airport, Virat looked dapper in a blue shirt, jeans and white sneakers and the 'PK' star was seen in a white tee, blue denims, and a stole over her shoulders, walking calmly without shying away from the papparazzi.
The rumours of two of them being a couple started when some fans saw the two holding hands in Auckland, New Zealand in February this year.
Gossip mills have also been saying that they might be tying the knot soon. When first Karan Johar on 'Koffee With Karan' asked her about it, Sharma just blushed. So was the scene at a recent promotional event for her upcoming movie 'PK' when Aamir took to teasing her after a reporter asked her about the relationship.
Virat too has been on the receiving end of teasing from Shah Rukh in an award show as well as Kapil on his famous TV show 'Comedy Nights with Kapil'.
